Hey administrators I was just reading all these statistics, and it seems that 20% of people will leave a site if there are pop ups and banners. Have u thought of getting it off. I mean ive had pop up banners of geocities uve one 20 million bucks (yeah right) and one about a damm survey, this place used to be spam 3 now when i open it up about 3 or 4 other boxes come off. Its really annoying. Would this have n e thing to do witht eh WTA STATRZ Network?

and one banner ad at the top of the page is hardly spam

if that's enough for you to leave a message board, i don't really think you'll find any other board on the net that does not require some form of revenue to keep it going after it reaches a thousand users

Poe,

I read that it was helping the sites in general (financially) if visitors click on these banners. is it the same here or does the money go to WTAST*RZ? Besides, there are some other advertisers who pay only once a commercial sale has been effected thanks to the banner.

Asking as I don't mind cliking on banners (takes only a few seconds), if it can help WTAworld.com to grow bigger and offer more stuff in future.

It is just a matter of give and take...

i appreciate your thoughtful post steve if for no other reason that they are a rarity around here lately

the people controlling the ad network are the same people who have graciously hosted our site which now requires unimaginable amounts of bandwidth to maintain

I'm more than happy to have them up there and if you want to click on them once in a while to help out, by all means

Thanks for your message Poe and understood now how it works. So, will do and hope everyone will do the same.

Since most members connect everyday, 2 minutes taken per day are not much for each person but multiplied by around 2 to 300 active members, it will mean a lot to the site...

may be...I understand it all..but it gives WTAworld another look..like it's really getting a commercial thing.

and I never click banners on a site..I wonder if many people will do that here....

Well ive never clicked on it, but it certainly doesnt bother me at all.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Thumbs up

Poe, I just clicked on the banner after reading the above posts. If that helps cover expenses for this site, I am very happy to do so. I think a lot of posters would do the same if they know about it. I never thought of clicking because there wasn't any notice asking for it. But anything that helps this site continue shouldn't be too much effort for the posters who are using it. Could you maybe post an announcement or something?
Long live WTAWorld!

What the world needs now is love, sweet love!

I actually clicked on one of the banners because it interested me But I'm glad I helped out wtaworld.com as well, because it totally deserves it.

Some people find banner ads offensive, some find them merely distracting while others don't even notice them. I think those of us in the first two groups could be made to understand with a friendly announcement.
